Emily Sisk-Layman, Principal
600 Picard Avenue
Belen, NM 87002
I came to Belen in 1990 to teach Physical Education and to coach High School Wrestling. In these 25 years I have taught PE at every elementary in Belen. I have also taught in the classroom during this time. I was a 3rd grade teacher at Gil Sanchez. I am classified as a level 3 teacher based on the fact that I have a Bachelors Degree in Physical Education and Health (K-12) from the University of New Mexico, a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from New Mexico Highlands University, and I have demonstrated to the State of New Mexico through a Dossier process that I am highly qualified to teach my subject area.
